Alastair’s Story
Shifting Gears
Alastair studied business with a special emphasis in marketing, design, and consumer behavior, but his interests shifted more toward user experience and design after a few years in the field. One day, while working for a prominent creative technology agency, a friend connected him with people at Atlassian, and eight interviews later, he got to work.

Design Manager
Working out of Atlassian’s Sydney office, Alastair arrives at the office around 9 AM clad in his signature flip-flops—which quickly come off—and he gets busy collaborating with his team on the new design experiences they’re currently creating for customers. In between, he meets with product managers and engineers to stay abreast of all upcoming projects.
